Well I am buying a new amp. I looked at the blackstar ht-5 and realized it was too quiet and then realized my budget was way beyond that. My budget is about 1,200 at most. I MAY be able to push it a little if I work all summer, but I was wondering if you guys know any really amazing amps that have great cleans and high gain... Given that, you have guessed correctly that I prefer 6L6's and american amps. Mesa is the ultimate tone for me. Sadly, everything is JUST out of my price range. I know there are many brands that not many know about that sound just as good as a mesa, or mabey a well known brand that sounds like a mesa but cheaper. I am very open to ideas so please, pour it on me.
Thanks lassies

What bands do you listen to/want to get the tone of? Also, can you go used? (If so, what state and closest major city do you live in/near?

If you are willing to go used there are plenty of Mesas for less than 1,200. Check out your local craigslist and ebay.
